Americanine: A Haute Dog In New York

AmericanineA French dog, upon his return to Paris, recounts to his dog friends about his trip to New York. The dachshund tells of the Statue of Liberty, the Guggenheim, Broadway, Central Park, Coney Island, and more. Humorous touches include his wonder at seeing “people through windows who were running hard but never left their spots and no ball ever showed up” and doggy bags! The charming and funny, yet sophisticated, illustrations were made with colored pencils. Sketches range from free-hand line drawings with speech bubbles to colorful and vibrant double-page spreads in this informative text.  mjw
